  • New Payday 2 DLC Pokes Fun at Battlefield

    payday 2 dlcPayday 2 developers StarBreeze have just released a new DLC pack that is currently only available on the Steam PC store. The new DLC pack includes new guns, melee weapons masks and gun mods for just $4.99.

    The new Payday 2 DLC has been dubbed the Gage Assault Pack, and it's promotional art, as you can see above, uncoincidentally resembles the splash art from Battlefield 4. It's clear that Payday 2 has been designed to be a lighthearted game with a humorous approach to gameplay, so this fun-poking at Battlefield from StarBreeze is pretty funny.

    Whilst the $4.99 Gaga Assault Pack is currently only available for PC via Steam, it's expected that the DLC pack will eventually be released for other platforms as well, including the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    A more-in depth look at the Gage Assault Pack reveals that there will be a total of four new guns, four melee weapons, four masks, 28 gun mods, new mask materials and patterns, and a total of 10 new achievements. Unfortunately the new pack does not add any additional heists or extra gameplay content.

    Like previous Payday 2 DLC, players can still join up with one another regardless of what DLC each player has. In fact, the original Gage Weapon Pack for Payday 2 added grenade boxes to the game, and players without the DLC could use grenades when partnered up with a player who owns the DLC.

    We'll let you know if we hear anything about a PS3 or Xbox 360 release for the Gage Assault Pack.

  • September Games with Gold Lineup Revealed

    september games with goldAnother month has gone by, and Microsoft have announced their plans for September's free Games with Gold lineup. Whilst the new games for September may not be anywhere near as good as the free games released last month, you can still get hold of a couple of decent titles this month too.

    For the Xbox One, players with an Xbox LIVE Gold membership will be able to grab Super Time Force all the way throughout the month, starting from September 1st, and ending September 30th. Super Time Force is an arcade side-scroller title that seems to incorporate game mechanics from games like Contra, and even Alien Hominid.

    For the second Xbox One title, players will be handed Crimson Dragon for the second month in a row. Whilst the repeated free release for the Games with Gold promotion has disappointed some Xbox owners, it's important to note that Microsoft's original plans were to release just one Xbox One game for free per month.

    As for the Xbox 360, players will be able to download Xbox Live Arcade team based puzzle title Monaco: What's Yours is Mine from September 1st to September 15th.

    Half way through the month the available free Xbox 360 game will switch over to Halo Reach. Halo Reach has now been out for a number of years, and whilst it can be picked up for cheap second hand, it's still a decent title that holds Bungie's last goodbyes to the franchise.

  • New August Xbox Live Games With Gold Announced

    xbox live games with gold augustWe've just rolled into a new month, and that means it's time to talk about the next Xbox Live Games with Gold lineup. We've got quite a few treats in store this week, including some Xbox 360 retail titles, as well as a couple digital-based Xbox One games.

    Firstly, Xbox One owners with Xbox Gold will be able to treat themselves with Crimson Dragon, an Xbox exclusive that saw itself as one of the few available Xbox One launch titles the day the console was released. Crimson Dragon is an indirect sequel to Panzer Dragoon, a game that made it's rounds on the Original Xbox many years ago. Crimson Dragon will be available all the way throughout the month.

    Alongside Crimson Dragon, Xbox Live gold subscribers will be able to get their hands on Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut, which made it to reality after successfully being backed on Kickstarter. Both Xbox One games are available till August 31st.

    As for the Xbox 360, players will be able to pick up Motocross Madness, a Trials lookalike till August 15th, whilst later on in the month, Dishonored will be available from August 16th till August 31st.

    All of these games are still fairly new, so Microsoft are being pretty generous with month's round of Xbox Live free Gold games. This is possibly one of the best months we've seen since the Xbox Live Games with Gold loyalty reward program began.

  • We Might Just Be Able to Play Xbox 360 Games on the Xbox One in the Future

    New XBOX ONEBeing able to play the last generation of games on a brand new console may seem like a bit of a gimmick at first, but it is an incredibly useful feature that could help many gamers that are on a budget.

    Being able to trade in your Xbox 360 console to help cut down on the costs of the Xbox One is a great option to have, but after building up years worth of games, it may not be that easy for many gamers to give that all up. This is why Xbox 360 emulation on an Xbox One would be immensely handy. In fact, while they're at it, if Microsoft could make the Xbox One support original Xbox games as well, that'd be incredibly useful.

    Whilst Microsoft never revealed any plans to have such a feature on the Xbox One, recently Frank Savage, partner development lead at Xbox, revealed that it's not entirely out of the question. When asked whether there were plans to bring an Xbox 360 emulation system to the Xbox One, Frank replied with "There are, but we're not done thinking them through yet, unfortunately. It turns out to be hard to emulate the PowerPC stuff on the X86 stuff. So there's nothing to announce, but I would love to see it myself."

    I'm sure if Sony were to offer an Emulation system on the PS4, Microsoft would feel obliged to follow through with a similar system, and vice versa. But until one player moves, no one is going anywhere with the whole emulation thing. Let's hope that Microsoft try to put more work into it, because I'd love to see it happen.

  • Titanfall Xbox 360 Version Will Offer Players 'the True Experience'

    titanfall xbox 360Whilst Titanfall has already been out for a while on both PC and Xbox One, Respawn Entertainment did originally plan for the title to have an Xbox 360 version released on the same date, too.

    However, delays in the development for the last gen port meant that the original release date had to be pushed back for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall, but it's finally almost time for the game to release, and despite previous concerns, it's looking like it may run fairly smoothly on the old machine.

    Whilst development for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall was handed down to Bluepoint Games, things should not be very different to the PC or Xbox One versions. Senior producer of the Titanfall 360 port, Daryl Allison, stated that despite the Xbox 360 being inferior in terms of hardware capability, the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall won't have any limitations.

    "Titanfall on the Xbox 360 is the true experience: all the maps, modes, pilots, titans, weapons, burn cards, you name it, found in the Xbox One and PC versions. The game looks great, sounds great, and above all it plays great. There are of course some differences that are due to the technical limitations of the hardware - for example, the game runs above 30fps - but the experts at Respawn worked with us to ensure that all the intense, 6v6 wall-running, titan-dropping action is there."
    This is exciting news to hear, and it looks like Xbox 360 players will be able to play the true Titanfall experience when the Xbox 360 port is released later this month.

  • New DLC May Make Alucard Playable in Castlevania 2

    Lord of Shadows 2 DLC][Lord of Shadows 2 DLC

    The new Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 video game has been fairly enjoyable, and I've actually been surprised at how much I've enjoyed playing through the game revival. However, unlike it's older predecessors, Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 lives in an age filled with DLC and extra content, so to get the most fun out of the experience, we'll have to wait for Konami to release their planned DLC packs.

    According to a forum member on CS.RIN.RU by the name of UbiSergei, the first Lords of Shadow 2 DLC pack will be called Revelations, and it may allow players to play as Alucard. The story of the DLC will let players discover a new plotline and understand "the true extent of Alucard's involvement."

    Alucard has been in the Castlevania series since Castlevania 3, so it'll be interesting to see how big fans will react to being able to play as the character. In Lords of Shadow 2, Alucard's father, Dracula, plays a pretty large role in the plotline, so it'll be interesting to see where the Revelations DLC may take us.

    For those more interested in the gameplay content instead of the story, the Revelations DLC is expected to come filled with "rich new environments and challenging puzzles" as well as various different creatures for Alucard to fight.

    As this information is all unofficial at this point, it's best to take it all with a little grain of salt until we hear something more official from the game's creators.

  • New UK Cinema Spot Released for Dark Souls 2 - Yes, it Looks Epic

    dark souls 2 spot

    If you can excuse the strange choice of music, I have something very exciting to show you. It's a brand new trailer headed for UK cinemas, and it shows some pretty intense footage of Darks Souls 2 in action.

    The trailer focuses on an iron-clad hero as he battles through numerous enemies, takes down a dragon, and goes through various forms of terrain. I know that the trailer doesn't really represent actual gameplay footage, but it still looks absolutely awesome.

    I was very interested in the first Dark Souls game but have yet to play it unfortunately, but I have heard many great things from the game, so this looks like a very nice treat, especially for anybody that has played the first game.

    The trailer seemed to be directly advertising the Black Armor Edition and the Collector's Edition of the game, and showed both copies with their exclusive goodies at the end of the trailer. The Black Armor Edition comes with the game, the title's soundtrack, as well as early access to the Black Armors weapon pack, which comes with five new weapons.

    The Collector's Edition also comes with the same exclusives, however it also comes packed with a 12" Warrior Knight figure, a Collectible art book, and a map of the game's world.

    Dark Souls 2 has been confirmed to be released this March, with March 11th, March 13th and March 14th playing key dates for different regions.

  • Arkham Origins has Bugs, but Warner Bros. Won't Fix Them

    Arkham Origins Bugs

    Unfortunately, Batman: Arkham Origins hasn't been released without some issues, and a lot of players have made remarks about bugs and glitches currently in the game. It seems quite a common occurrence these days to have a game released by a triple A development team that is filled with bugs, glitches and errors that really shouldn't be in the game at all.

    It's ridiculously frustrating for the average gamer, and it makes us feel a bit used, really. It feels as if developers and publishers are simply using our love for games as a way to get to our wallets, and this story will just make us all even angrier.

    What's really terrible about the bugs in Batman: Arkham Origins is that Warner Bros. know exactly what bugs are in the game, thanks to the dozens of reports spread across the internet, but despite this, they seem reluctant to do anything about them.

    And the reason why Warner Bros. isn't in a hurry to fix the bugs in Arkham Origins is because they are focusing on something else instead - DLC.

    Yes, that's right, Warner Bros. doesn't want to fix the bugs and glitches in the game right now because they'd rather work on bringing in more content to the game that players can purchase.

    The community managers exact words are as follows - "The team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans for releasing another patch to address the issues that have been reported on the forums."

    If you aren't having any issues or are happy to play through the problems, the new upcoming DLC is expected to be a single player add-on that will bring Batman up against Mr Freeze.

  • Minecraft PS3 Set for Release this week

    Minecraft PS3 ReleaseDespite being out on the Xbox 360 since last year, no other ports have reached the market, apart for the pocket edition version for Android and iOS devices. However, that is about to change as it has been confirmed that 4J Studios, the team behind the console ports, has finally finished with the PS3 version and it is planned for a release this week.

     

    On Tuesday, 17th December, Minecraft for PlayStation 3 will be available as a digital download on the PlayStation store. The Minecraft Xbox 360 version is available for around $20, so it's likely the price of the PlayStation 3 version will be similar, however we won't be able to find out until it's release day tomorrow.

     

    Although it has taken 4J Studios a long time to port the Xbox version over to the PS3, the PlayStation version won't be missing out on any game content, and will include all of the features in the latest patch on the Xbox 360 version.

     

    The PS3 game will come with no extra skins or texture pack DLCs, but these will be added later on in 2014.

     

    The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 ports were also planned for a late 2013 release, however they have since been delayed and will now only make it to consoles some time in 2014, along with the extra PS3 DLC content.

     

    4J Studios also have plans for improving upon the current gameplay experience for the console port, however they won’t be working on new updates for the consoles until all console versions are out, so TU14 for Xbox 360 has since been delayed.

  • Sleeping Dogs Developers Release Sneak Peek Triad Wars Screenshot

    Sleeping Dogs Triad Wars

    Sleeping Dogs was one open world action game that really caught a lot of our attention, and since then a lot of us have been wondering what has been going in the United Front Games studio after development finished for the title.

    Whilst rumors have been laid on the table about a direct sequel to the first game, there has been no official information on whether that is true or not - except for now that is.

    This week, a United Front Games developer revealed an image on Twitter that showed a small glimpse at what they have been working on since going quiet after Sleeping Dogs was released. It was later confirmed that the game was Triad Wars, which has been said to be a sequel for the first Sleeping Dogs game.

    In the screenshot, we can see that the game looks to be a 3rd person game, so it's likely at this point that it is indeed the next lineup in the Sleeping Dogs series.

    So far, details on the game have been pretty minimal, and in fact at this point there is almost no information on the game at all. We can guess by the title and the screenshot that the game will most likely involve some sort of gang war - perhaps a three-way gang war, or a war of gangs that have three members in each gang.. We really aren't sure just yet, but we'll keep you updated on this as always.
